Now in its 28th year, the National Alliance for Musical Theatre's Annual Festival of New Musicals attracts theatre producers from around the world for this industry-only event to discover eight new musicals presented in 45-minute concert presentations over two days.
The Actual Dance is a graceful and inspiring love story. It is theater that opens a rare window into the mind and soul of a husband and caregiver. Audiences are transfixed as the actor weaves in and out of a mystical ballroom getting ready to do what he could not imagine.
When first noticing his wife at the age of sixteen, Sam could not predict the profound connection they would share—they are two halves of the same whole. In their 33rd year of marriage, that love was tested…and the ringing in Sam's ear was not as one would expect, in fact it was an orchestra, playing the music of his life--The Actual Dance.
Live arts. Up close. Culturemart is the annual festival of hybrid works in progress coming out of the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP), where process becomes the focus. Beautifully produced, yet still in development, Culturemart provides a platform for current and often a few former Resident Artists to blur the boundaries between dance, theater, music, new media, puppetry and visual art, melding these forms to support their adventurous visions. This year's program will feature 12 workshop performances spanning genres as varied as surreal object-theater, cinematic music-theater, immersive historical theater and everything in-between.
After a traumatic breakup with a long-time lover, Margery turns to the Internet for distraction from haunting questions about her life and the demise of her relationship. Distraction rapidly becomes addiction as she searches online for potential dates and mates, and finds herself wrapped in an ever-growing web of Internet loops, jargon and videos.
Dozens of productions spotlighting the best artists on the world puppetry stage.
BAM's Next Wave Festival has permanently changed the artistic landscape, featuring breakout performances and landmark productions. Using a name that plays on the New Wave in French cinema, BAM president and executive producer Harvey Lichtenstein launched a series entitled "The Next Wave/New Masters" in November 1981 with four productions: three dance works, plus Philip Glass' new opera Satyagraha. A more ambitious program followed in 1982, including a two-evening performance work by Laurie Anderson entitled United States: Parts I-IV.
The success of these first two years helped propel a bolder and riskier program in the years to come—one that has defined BAM and an entire generation of artists. Current Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo was the producing director of the Next Wave in its inception and continues to spearhead BAM's adventurous programming roster with emerging and established artists, including Steve Reich, Meredith Monk, Robert Wilson, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, and Lev Dodin.
A man's nose disappears from his face, and turns up the next day gallivanting around St. Petersburg dressed as a general -- what a lot of nosesense!
